i want to play this. here it is. >> i was waiting for one of those senators, in fact, i put it up on facebook, fail, corker, fail, rubio, fail. down the line, they had her -- they had her with her own word, and they for some reason went back to the yard. >> what is the blood lust for hillary clinton? >> i think what you're seeing, ed, these are the first shots being fired in the 2016 campaign. and i think a lot of republicans thought this was their opportunity to publicly take down hillary clinton ahead of a run that she hasn't even announced. and i think the idea is that hillary clinton is a politically potentially potent force coming from the democratic party. and this was an opportunity, frankly, for a lot of back benchers whose names are not known like ron johnson, people who are not stars on the senate stage, to get out there, be on television and make a name for themselves. i think clearly that's what rand paul was doing. i think ron johnson and others were trying to raise their profile at their expense. >> and admiral, we may never know the motivation for the attack. is that a fair statement?
